B&G WIFI-1 Client mode - problem connecting to internet

I am trying to connect my Zeus 2 MFD to the internet to download Predictwind GRIB files automatically.

I have gone through the process of connecting in client mode via tethering to my mobile phone, including using valid passwords.

On the phone, I can see the B&G has tethered properly. However, on the MFD stays in the interim "Connecting to Android Anthony" (my phone) process.

Testing using the B&G store on the MFD says no internet connection. The GRIB files don't download either.

I have had no problem tethering other devices to my phone. I also tried another Android phone.

I have no problem using "Access point mode" to connect tablets, so the WIFI-1 is working

No joy - am I missing something fundamental?
